Transcript for The 'Golden Girls' Are Back, as Puppets
Finally tonight, a chance to relive the golden years with a live puppet show. Here again my "Nightline" coanchor juju Chang. ??? Thank you for being a friend ??? Reporter: It's the 1980s cult classic "The golden girls." And now it's back. This time as an off-broadway puppet parody. That golden girls show featuring four unexpectedly saucy single ladies living out their golden years together in Miami. Just at potty-mouthed and angsty as ever. Rose the sweetheart who loves her hometown of St. Olaf. Dorothy who tells it like it is. Sofia, or ma. And blanch, who just loves sex. It's like a timeless series that has just gone through the last 30 years. Reporter: But this puppet show tells the story of the girls before they were the golden girls. I don't know, I just don't see this taking off. I mean, who'd want to watch a TV show about four old women living in Miami? It will be a blip on the radar. You are so right, I give it eight weeks. Tops. Reporter: If they only knew what was to come. Seven seasons and a jaw-dropping 68 Emmy nominations. See that man over there staring at me? He's undressing me with his eyes. Do you want to move to another table? Not yet, he's only half done. Reporter: The puppets embodying the nuances of the characters. I am a southern belle. The belle of the ball. She's a bit of a slut. Reporter: As for their take on president-elect trump? They're sticking to character. Wait, Ronald Reagan is president. 1985. That's where we are now. Reporter: Politics aside -- The golden girls is about friendship. This is the original "Sex and the city." ??? Thank you for being a friend ??? Reporter: The puppet girls are teaming up with the New York City guy men's chorus to reprise that famous theme. ??? You're a pal and a confidant ??? Reporter: For "Nightline" I'm juju Chang in New York. The "Golden girls" remains my daughter's favorite TV show. The beauty of aging gracefully. It was the legendary baseball player satchel Paige who said, age is a case of mind over matter. You don't mind, it don't matter.
